Künstlerhaus Stuttgart is pleased to present Florian Zeyfang’s first solo exhibition in Stuttgart.
The exhibition Stones is a continuation of the Stuttgart-born artist’s long-term preoccupation with experimental forms of moving images and narration, showing the results of a new body of work, which takes up Zeyfang’s fundamental question of the use of media and the reflective breaking up of media.
Archives, still moving images and reduction serve as the central starting points for the exhibition. Stones seem to defy the quality of moving images; they are lifeless and yet charged with time and history. From a linguistic and terminological point of view the term “stone” covers a wide range of appearances. Zeyfang approaches the different forms of stones at the site where he finds them or uses images of processed stones forming parts of a city archive for his video and slide projections. Both as remnants of a city and as erratics, stones shape a time frame which, owing to its size, can hardly be perceived or depicted.
Florian Zeyfang was born in Stuttgart in 1965. He grew up in Stuttgart and Bremen and studied art in Berlin where he currently lives and works as an artist, author, and curator. His interest for alternating organizational forms between group and individual activities continues to be present in various projects. His works can be seen at international exhibitions and film festivals.
